Discover a design for life with our latest major exhibition, Denmark Design.

Pioneering, practical and timeless – Danish design has consistently been at the forefront of the applied arts and is today considered a shorthand for modern living and the modern home.

Charting developments in Danish design from the 19th century until today, with a focus on the post-World War II period, Denmark Design presents over 200 original objects, from furniture to fabrics, graphic design to jewellery, and ceramics to toys.

Through the icons of Danish design, the exhibition explores the makers, ideologies and social contexts from which some of the archetypes of modern domestic design developed.

The exhibition features iconic works, such as the Egg chair, the PH Artichoke light and the Lego brick.

Among the pioneering designers and manufacturers whose creativity and skill are represented are Royal Copenhagen, Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Nanna Ditzel, Henning Koppel, Georg Jensen, Komplot and Ursula Munch-Petersen.

Denmark Design is curated by Designmuseum Danmark and Michael & Mariko Whiteway. The exhibition tour is coordinated by Brain Trust Inc., Tokyo.
